We are hiring!

We may be biased, but we think we have the very best jobs in the world. We get to help people positively change the trajectory of their lives by empowering them to go after the position of their dreams. We equip job seekers with professionally written career marketing documents that showcase their unique value proposition. 

The Briefcase Coach has been named the top resume writing firm for experienced executives. Founder, Sarah Johnston, has been named a LinkedIn Top Voice and one of the most influential global HR leaders by HR Weekly. We work with thoughtful leaders across a range of industries. It is always our goal to over-deliver.

We are hiring a remote, part-time virtual assistant/project manager to engage with our clients. This is a flexible 15-20 hour a week part-time job.

This is a perfect role for someone who takes the initiative, is intuitive, confident, extremely organized, with impeccable attention to detail, and is strategic.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Manage all calendars and appointments
  • Handle incoming prospect inquiries
  • Book discovery calls
  • Send client proposals
  • Maintain client records and track progress
  • Social Media and Google My Business 
  • Project manage priorities by providing status updates and ensuring that partners are included in meetings and communications where required.
  • Send client feedback emails and referral gifts.
  • Create client intake forms and custom questionnaires

The ideal candidate is:

  • Very Detail-oriented (will be sending emails and proposals to thoughtful executives who look for dotted i’s and crossed t’s)
  • Isn’t overwhelmed easily. Some days, this role might feel like you are an air traffic controller managing many deadlines and priorities. 
  • Technology savvy. We use Google Suite and Calendly. If you’ve never used these platforms, we are happy to train you. You just need to have a can-do attitude and demonstrated familiarity with technology.
  • Kind. We are working remotely… you don’t get the benefit of seeing someone in person, so you have to give people to benefit of the doubt. Working with nice people is underrated but makes such a difference!
  • Discrete. Must maintain the confidentiality of sensitive information
  • Confident. The founder is an ideas person and welcomes creative thought and feedback. You are invited–but not required– to give process improvement suggestions and ideas.
  • Care about people. We are in the people business. Our work directly impacts people’s livelihoods. 
How flexibility is defined: We are looking for someone who can commit to a minimum of two hours a day. In a perfect world, 1-2 of the hours would be done in the morning and then perhaps another hour to half-hour in the afternoon or evening. That being said, for the right person, we are open to discussing options and availability. 
What it’s like working with the Briefcase Coach: This is a small business (a fancier description is it’s a boutique executive coaching practice). We don’t use the phrase “work family” because that’s toxic branding. But we are small enough to care. The owner is a parent and works very hard but maintains a flexible schedule. 

Interested in applying?

To apply, please email your resume and a cover letter explaining why you are interested in this opportunity to Sarah@Briefcasecoach.com.

Final candidates will be asked to take the Strengths Finder assessment.

(Ps. Even though we are in the resume business, we don’t expect you to have a perfect resume. Please don’t overthink the resume.)
